The main cashmere producing countries in the world are China, Mongolia, Iran, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Turkey and etc. The annual output of the world's original cashmere is stable at 15000-16000 tons, of which China accounts for more than 70% of the world's total output, Mongolia produces about 20% of cashmere (mainly green cashmere and purple cashmere, while white cashmere only accounts for about 5% of its output), and a small part is produced in other countries. In cashmere resources, white cashmere is the most precious, and its output only accounts for about 30% of the world's cashmere output.
In the international market, more than 50% of the world's high-quality cashmere is produced in Inner Mongolia. Inner Mongolia's Albas cashmere goat, Alxa cashmere goat, Erlang cashmere goat and Chifeng Saihan cashmere goat are the main sources of China's high-quality cashmere. At the same time, the annual output of cashmere in Inner Mongolia accounts for 1 / 2 of the whole country and 1 / 3 of the world. It is known as the consensus that "the world's cashmere looks at China and China's cashmere looks at Inner Mongolia". More than 2600 cashmere enterprises in China have gathered 90% of the world's cashmere raw materials, and the processed products have been exported to more than 40 countries and regions, including Japan, the United States, Italy, the United Kingdom, France, etc., accounting for 80% of the world's exports.
